What makes these the best of the best chocolate brownies?
Before making these brownies, I scoured cookbooks and the internet to find more information about these delicious treats.
Apparently, brownies first appeared in an American cookbook titled the 1896 Boston Cooking-School Cookbook by Fannie Merritt Farmer. Cited on Amazon as:
a perennial bestseller first published in 1896. A pioneering work in the culinary field, it was the first cookbook to provide level measurements and easy-to-follow directions.Amazon
In today’s baking world there are different versions of Brownies that are loosely categorised as cakey or fudgy. This recipe is of the fudgy variety, containing LOADS of chocolate and butter and very little flour. My addition of fresh coffee just adds another subtle layer of richness too. Honestly, these are sensational!
There are so many options you can choose to make these your own. Try adding toasted hazelnuts or pecans. Or swap out the milk chocolate chunks for white chocolate. Just make sure you use good quality chocolate, because the better the chocolate, the better the flavour and decadence value.
There’s another brownie recipe on my site that’s more cakey. Containing coconut too, my coconut chocolate brownies contain more flour and less fat. They’re still very tasty and definitely a brownie, but more a brownie slice than decadent treat.
